1) A rec: obsessive24
has made an absolutely incredible
BSG vid - Slow Down Gandhi
. It's about the politics of the mutiny, the fate of the underclasses, the abuse of power in the political and military hierarchies, dangling Earth like a carrot while letting Cylon fill the Fleet. And it manages to do this in a way that also invites the viewer to cast a critical eye on the vid's narrators - Gaeta, and, to a lesser extent, Zarek. At least as I watched it, I found myself as angry at Zarek for his opportunism and selfishness as I was with Adama and Roslin frakking while the world burns. And Gaeta is in the middle, angry, and making all the wrong choices. Perhaps it's my unfailing love of all things Cylon, but despite obsessive24
's worries, I found the Cylon sections of the vid to be some of my favourites.
Anyway, I want to do justice to the layers of discussion in this vid, but I'll fail if I try, so I will just say, OMG POLITICS! RUN! GO WATCH IT!
Also, if you have any weakness for political rap, the music is amaaaazing
So someone decided to link The Enemy Within
on TWOP's Gender in Galactica thread
Which is nice and all, and I'm surprised but glad it's getting a slightly wider audience than I thought and everything. And true, only two people have said anything about it (the poster who linked to it and one respondant), but...both of them seem to have completely missed
the fact it's really, really GAY.
I mean...really. Did I not put in enough porn? (Don't answer that, Julie.)
It had actual, literal girlslash goggles.
Oh, internets. I thought you would never
fail to see subtext. Or, you know. Text. Which involved nakedness.
